Jeff Cooper on Mindset

The idea of having a home defense gun(s) comes from a particular mindset.  That mindset is one along the lines of that one must be ready to take lethal action in order to protect oneself and one’s family.

Jeff Cooper is known as the father of the “Modern Technique” of handgun shooting.  Besides weapons and shooting, Cooper was a huge proponent of having a proper mindset.  Check out Cooper’s book “Principles Of Personal Defense.” One of my favorite quotes of his is”

“Calling 911 is all well and great, but they take a long time to get there.”
